Daria Gibron, the former Israeli Shin Bet agent now operating as an one-woman destruction crew for the FBI, eludes every secret intelligence agency in the world but catches a recombinant RNA virus in the process.
John Broom, the CIA analyst who wrote the background report on Gibron, insists that she’s no threat to American security even though she has plans to meet Maj. Khalid Belhadj, a 15-year veteran of the Mukhabarat (the Syrian Military Intelligence Directorate), in New York. The last time they met, Daria tried to kill him. Oddly, she’s warned off the rendezvous, causing a brouhaha within the CIA that sets Gibron on the run with Belhadj. Meanwhile, Will Halliday, a Secret Service turncoat, is helping Asher Sahar, reactivated by the Group, an unauthorized Israeli dirty-tricks squad, to steal a canister full of some lethal stuff from Denver. When analysts decide that the tie-in between the superspies, now code named Pegasus A, has as its target the U.S. president, a geopolitical chase for them begins, hopping from country to country before they can target the world leaders attending a summit meeting. The chase winds up outside Paris, where two groups of snipers confront each other on a rooftop while Sahar hunkers down in a room created within a room within another room below. Gibron, who’s known Sahar since they were children sequestered with host families while the Mossad trained them, infiltrates his lair and decides to stop him but becomes contaminated by the canister’s contents. Sahar heads for an escape tunnel while sundry intelligence agencies shell the building, but Gibron catches him and severs his spinal cord, leading to a face-off between her and her temporary ally Belhadj.
Enough intelligence agencies, bad guys and gruesome viruses for a month of nonstop massacres. When Haynes runs out of guns and knives to put in the hands of superheroine Daria (Breaking Point, 2011, etc.), he turns oxygen tanks into missiles for her to launch.
